October 27, 2011 17:20

Kadima MK and former deputy Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) head Yisrael Hasson told Israel Radio Thursday afternoon that Ilan Grapel was in good health after being released from prison in Egypt. Hasson landed in Cairo earlier and was accompanied by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s envoy Yitzhak Molcho, who also negotiated for the dual US-Israeli citizen's release.

Grapel, who has been held in Egypt for five months on spying charges, was expected to land at Ben-Gurion Airport within the next hour, and then drive to Jerusalem for a brief meeting with Netanyahu.
